I usually will eat Kashi GoLEAN Original (140 cal, 13 g protein) with 1/2 cup skim milk (40 cal, 4 g protein), and then some fruit... or I'll eat a hardboiled egg with some milk and toast... Or I'll just make a protein shake. I prefer to start the day heavy on protein.

not every morning - sometimes I just feel like fruit. But, cottage cheese or yogurt are my 'go to' morning proteins.

I usually eat cold cereal every morning so I get my protein in the form of soy milk and there is also some in the cereal itself. Turns out to be about 10g of protein altogether every morning

Not every morning but many times. I eat eggs, as well as cottage cheese. I had a fabulous omelet today with onions, ham, and cheese...YUM!

I eat my breakfast in phases...phase 1 is 1/4 cup oatmeal cooked with 1/2 cup fat free milk and 40 blueberries at 7 am...then I usually go for a run or do an exercise video, shower and get ready for work at 10...before going to work I eat phase 2 - 100 calories of fruit (melon, strawberries, pineapple, grapes, grapefruit) with 1/2 cup non fat greek yogurt...before lunch I'll nibble on some nuts if I'm hungry - I allow myself 6 almonds and 10 pistacios...I guess they are phase 3

so around 350 calories before noon...20% are protein calories from non-fat dairy and carbs are high and fat is low at this point in the day but I like to get most of my fat cals from olive oil and that works well into my lunch salad and dinner (not so much into my oatmeal (: )

i've been eating scrambled eggs or making smoothies with fresh fruit, spinach and almond milk. Surprisingly, the smoothies keep me pretty full until lunchtime!

Lean protein is one of my "secret" weapons for good health and weight management. I start with a 280-320 calorie protein bar for breakfast and then I have fish (usually tuna and/or mahi) for lunch and dinner with vegetables and fruit. Sometimes I substitute grilled or blackened chicken for one of the meals, but I rarely eat beef anymore. I'm usually at the upper range of the protein numbers SparkPeople gives me and barely make it into the low end of the fat range, if at all.

Usually either eggs or Greek yogurt. Sometimes a protein shake (meal replacement), if I'm either in a hurry or restricting calories because my weight's been up a bit for more than a day or so.

I do every meal with protein, and use protein for snacks, too. For breakfast, I have 2 cups of veggies, add 1/2 cup egg whites, in a pan, cook that up. Includes half a zucchini, mushrooms, leftover veggies from dinner, such as cauliflower or brussel sprouts, then add green onion, brown that up. Makes a nice portion, has 4 servings of veggies in there, plus your protein. No starches. Not until lunch.

every meal should have a protein in it. I start my day with nuts, cottage cheese or peanut butter.

Greek yogurt, Kashi hot cereal, peanut butter, eggs, or Canadian bacon are some of my usual morning protein sources.

Do you start every morning with a protein? If so, what is it?
